From the program director
Thank you for your interest in the Infectious Diseases Fellowship at Mayo Clinic's campus in Jacksonville, Florida. We're proud to offer an individualized experience designed to provide the best training elements necessary for you to become highly skilled in infectious diseases.
It is our mission to create an environment that fosters lifelong learning of infectious diseases for residents, fellows, and staff, and enables excellence in the provision of patient-centered medicine. Our infectious diseases fellows have the opportunity to train at one of the largest transplant centers in the world, and gain clinical expertise in emerging subspecialties within infectious diseases including HIV, travel and tropical medicine, infection control, antimicrobial stewardship, and general infectious disease.
Infectious disease trainees spend six months conducting primary research projects during the fellowship. The division provides an array of clinical research opportunities, and fellows are provided the opportunity to present their work at local, national and international meetings, and publish their work in peer-reviewed journals.
Fellows and residents have access to world leaders across many specialty areas throughout their training in Mayo Clinic's multidisciplinary care practice.
Whether you want to pursue a career in academic medicine or private practice, Mayo Clinic will support you.
We encourage you to learn more about our Infectious Diseases Fellowship and contact us should you have additional questions.
Lisa Brumble, M.D.
